Productive Partnerships: How Municipal Cultural Resource Management (CRM) Programs and Student Research Can Support Each Other
For decades, Cultural Resource Management (CRM) projects have yielded a wealth of information and artifacts. While some of these projects have been incorporated into academic research, many remain unstudied and unpublished. The situation is especially problematic in municipal and small-scale archaeology programs that are constrained by time, logistics, and budgetary considerations. Fortunately, students are in a prime position to help remedy the issue by working with such programs. The Archaeology Program in St. Augustine, Florida, demonstrates this approach as it includes students in both its CRM fieldwork and collections research. The resulting mutually beneficial relationship helps to alleviate research oriented short-comings of the program while providing opportunities for students to acquire the varied facets of actual field experiences and collections use.
